Medical student agreements- How do they help?

This is a video about a ‘white coat ceremony’. Leeds has introduced it’s own version although most UK medical student see patients well before 3rd year.

Many medical schools are now introducing agreements (or charters) which students may be asked to sign which lay out their responsibilities as a developing professional. Asking about these on Twitter shows that many students don’t remember what they have signed or don’t feel that the exercise had any value. What do you think? What is the benefit of these agreements? How do they help?

Here are some of the agreements which I have found. https://delicious.com/wishfulthinker/medstudentagreement/search?p=agreement

Looking forward to hearing your views!
